Climbing Up

palm in the sun ed_edited-1

Climbing up

to the top of the world

to get the big picture

gain some perspective

on how life really works.

Thinking big thoughts

about small worries

tinkering on solutions

to unsolvable problems

already gone with the wind.

I’m still climbing up

 heart in my pocket

 mind running ahead

soul yearning to reach higher

now every breath hurts.
